15 Times 'Parks And Recreation' Was Relatable AF

Spring break is the best and worst thing about the spring semester. It felt absolutely amazing to spend a week away from the dreadful exams and papers that have been shaping us into these sleep-deprived, caffeine-driven monsters. Expected to feel rejuvenated, we come back from spring break with a little more physical strength, but have zero motivation to finish this semester. Mentally, we have no resilience to make ourselves those energetic and optimistic people who wanted this semester to be the best one yet back in January. Here are all our struggles as told by "Parks and Recreation."

1. Avoiding all your responsibilities

Much like Ron Swanson, you wish that you can just keep turning away from all your problems. Out of sight, out of mind!

2. Being overwhelmed by anything your professor says

Excuse me? What do you mean that finals is due in five weeks? I just got back from spring break and I left my brain in Cancun.

3. Being irritated by anything and everything

(Writer's personal experience: yesterday, I saw four freshmen girls share one cigarette, and all take selfies when it was their turn...)

4. Drinking to get through the day

Maybe if you drink, the semester will go by quicker.

5. Not understanding why your professors aren't buying your BS

"What! I can't believe I didn't get an A on this paper that I spent half an hour on!"

6. Overreacting about everything

"Accidentally drops pencil*. Well, I guess college isn't for me after all."

7. Trying your best

No matter how hard you try, it just seems like your body is rejecting all the work.

8. Indulging

Even though you only wrote your name in MLA format, you still somehow justify a break.

9. Being super lazy

You wake up in the morning and think about how good it would feel to go to bed at night.

10. Wanting a hug from your friend... or wanting to be licked by a puppy

You just need a little support sometimes, and puppies can make everyone feel better about themselves.

11. Rejecting everything

Doesn't matter what it is, you don't want to have anything to do with it. Don't wanna see it, don't wanna go to it, just... No.

12. Being emotional and denying the heck out of it

"Watches a cute movie*. NO, I WILL NOT CRY!

13. Being super in touch with your emotions a minute late

Feel as happy as Ron Swanson does the day after he gets laid. Pimp out Tiger Woods Style.

14. Isolating yourself from all things and people

You just want everyone to stop talking to you. Don't text, don't call, don't BREATHE!

15. Knowing you still have to be doing your work

As much as you dread it, you still finish your homework and actually go to class.

Motivating yourself to finish this semester is hard, but you can do it, because you know that college is actually pretty amazing, well, most of the times.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
